I have had a few. One was REALLY loud. The one I have now though is pretty quiet. I think it just varies from bird to bird.

I don't keep a rooster, but interestingly, went to the annual Blueberry Festival in Burgaw, NC yesterday (about an hour's drive from me). Stopped at a consignment shop on the way home, just outside Burgaw. In front they had several silkie hens and a silkie rooster. All were white & beautiful. At first, we didn't notice the pen. When we got out of car, we heard an incessant crowing. I asked my husband where it was coming from. He said it must be some motion-activated warning sound (as in "You've got customers!") because the sound was so repetitive and tinny-sounding. But, sure 'nuf-- there was that beautiful silkie rooster making all that racket in the middle of the day. (I did ask the store owner to confirm they were silkies, since I don't have any exhibition hens.)

It varies among individuals. No way to tell. Generally speaking, roosters are loudest when competing with other rooster (Meaning, the more roosters you have, the more crowing will be heard).

Roosters in general vary.

If you only have one roo, it won't crow as much. Crowing is a territorial/"I'm top dog" kind of thing. If they have no rival, they will only crow occasionally.
